A Note from Our Director of Entertainment:
In January of 2020, an experience changed the way our clients and our team operated their lives. The Covid-19 pandemic made the Mobile Adventure Company Team focus on how to bring 5-star entertainment to the country while keeping everyone as safe as possible.
Being a mobile business, we get to meet people from all different areas of the country, and we wanted to take a second to thank all our customers for being kind, courteous, and respectful of our policies, even when they did not match with your own. I can say with certainty that the arguing and animosity that is shown every day on the news is not indicative of the majority of America we witnessed.
As we move forward, I promise that the Mobile Adventure Team will always keep your health and safety at the top of our priorities. Thank you for your continued support of our entertainment business. Our current Health and Safety Policies are listed below, and I encourage you to reach out with any questions.
Here is a brief list of our health and safety precautions updated as of 3/1/22:
- Guests may discontinue the use of masks while participating in our attractions.
- If the host of any party requests for masks to be worn we will honor this request and make it mandatory for all participants and our team members.
- We will continue to disinfect all locks, keys, buttons, and other hand props in our escape rooms, as well as our racing cars, game show equipment, and our throwing axes. In brief, any item that comes into contact with human hands will be disinfected after each use.
- We will maintain the intensity of our cleaning when it comes to floors, walls, and all surfaces.
- We will provide our patrons with hand sanitizer before participating in and during our attractions.
- We will continue our policy of “No Food or Drinks Allowed” in our escape rooms and axe throwing trailers.
- We will continue limiting the maximum number of participants in our escape rooms to allow for more social distancing.

What did a small entertainment company learned in 2020?
Well 2020 is almost in the books. For many (including myself) there is a very audible sigh of relief. In January and February of 2020, Mobile Room Escape and Mobile Axe Throwing were off to their most busy and successful year yet. None of our team thought that the MEME’s going around Facebook about our most beloved beer served with a lime wedge (Corona) would bring our families, our business, and our nation to a screeching halt.
In escape rooms, participants are constantly thrown a curve ball and must work together to turn “lemons” into “lemonade”. The team of seven at Mobile Room Escape and Mobile Axe Throwing turned to our Team Building acronym “L.O.C.K.” which stands for “Leadership, Overcoming Obstacles, Communication, and Kindness” to make the appropriate changes to our small business as the world changed around us. Our entire team put on a new set of hats this year to help build and grow our company for years to come.
Amy, our sales director, took over Leadership of our marketing from Justin to help us reach out to all customers about our progress. Amy turned our escape room and axe throwing company into a full on Mobile Adventure Company specializing in immersive events.
With the lack of in-person events, Justin helped us to Overcome Obstacles by turning his focus to creating our New Virtual Escape Room Game which would prove to be our most popular attraction of the year.
Frank, our head game master for Mobile Room Escape, took our previous “cleaning guide” and turned it into a dynamic “Health and Safety Program”. Frank did his research to gather the scientific information on disease control and prevention, researched and secured cleaning supplies, and Communicated to all our crew about our more vigorous health and safety procedures.
Ethan, our head axe master, found himself super busy creating Mobile Racing Challenge, our newest socially distanced attraction featuring high speed remote control cars.
Drew and Brandon held down the fort keeping our clients safe and comfortable as our live events went back into action in July.
As the owner of the company, I found my role changing by having more direct contact with our clients than I had in years past. While some of these conversations were difficult to have (Postponing of birthdays, cancelling of conventions, and pausing camp field trips) it truly was a pleasure to do what I enjoy doing most-creating relationships with people. What touched me the most was the majority of our clients were more concerned about how we were doing as a small business than their own personal events. Your Kindness and caring for our business is what motivated myself and the entire team to keep working, building, and creating lasting memories for you.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for remaining positive and supporting travel, the arts, small business and live events. We look forward to paying it back in 2021.
Happy New Year from all of us to you,
President of Mobile Adventure Company
Meet Doug. The Six Year Old that Inspired a Startup Company
Meet Doug. Doug’s a good guy. He loves Pokemon, cats, soccer, and playing with his older brother. Doug rarely asks me to buy him toys, which is why I was pretty surprised in June when he said “Daddy I want a remote control car”
I said, “Doug….I bought you one for the holidays and you never play with it.” Doug paused for a second and said “I would like one that goes really fast, and that I can put bigger wheels on.” It was a very respectful way of letting me know the $15.00 RC Car I bought him at Walgreens was not going to cut it.
Fast forward a couple hours later and we are at Hobby Town in Northbrook, IL. I went in planning to spend no more than $100.00, and I walked out with a $140.00 RC Car, and a 6-year-old with a smile you could see through his mask.
We arrived home and ripped open the box to what looked like a mini monster truck. We quickly inserted the batteries in the car, and Doug pulled the transmitter trigger sending this mini truck 20 MPH off the curb and flying down the street. There’s my boy popping wheelies, and drifting full speed into our driveway.
As Doug played with his car, I vaguely recalled being his age and having a friend whose Dad had a Hobby Grade RC Car. We were only allowed to watch my friend’s father play with it but not drive it ourselves. I mean after all these cars are hundreds of dollars and parts easily break when you crash them. It was as that thought when I hear Doug say “Ummmmm Daddy, I think the wheel fell off my truck.”
The next day we are back at Hobby Town to “replace the cracked caster block on Doug’s Remote Control Car” … I figured while we’re here lets test out another couple of vehicles to see which one we like more. Spoiler alert, they cost more than the $140.00 truck.)
When we arrived home we got the new RC Cars ready to go. I fixed up Doug’s car and with the assistance of my older son, we started zooming three RC Cars down our block. The next thing you know the neighbors and their kids come over to try, then a few more kids come over from down the street. All the kids from the neighborhood are communicating, playing, racing the RC cars against each other. One kid on a bike even raced a car to see if he was faster. The RC Car left him in its dust. They spent the next 30 minutes trying to make the cars jump the curb and do full body rolls. They were doing this all while social distancing during these times. Even the parents were watching in amazement, probably recalling their own Remote Control Car Memories from their youth.
Over the next 2 months, our team of creative performing and visual artists stayed working through the COVID 19 pandemic to create a brand new immersive experience. August 21st, 2020 Mobile Racing Challenge came to life for its first event. A new addition to the Mobile Escape Room and Mobile Axe Throwing line of attractions that come directly to your location. Our 30 x 20 ft track gives adults and kids the opportunity to step into the driver’s seat of a high-speed race car….just much smaller. My hope is to create that adventure for our clients just as it did for Doug, his friends, and the neighbors.
Contact us today to book your adventure. Something exciting, something fun, something new, and something with a variety of courses and challenges that put you in the driver seat.!

Axe Throwing Hits the Mark During Grandparents Day at Batavia Holmstad
Former arm-wrestling champion and Covenant Living at the Holmstad resident Barb Campbell did her best to hit the wooden target with her axe throws Saturday during Grandparents Day but couldn’t quite hit the mark.
“I had never heard of (axe throwing) but it was great,” said Campbell before flexing and showing off her biceps to her family’s enjoyment.
For the second time in a few months, the mobile axe-throwing activity returned to the Batavia Retirement Center.
“The first time was just for the residents and staff,” said Nicole Sickafoose, resident life director, “but we brought it back for Grandparents’ Day.”
Sickafoose said that typically Grandparents’ Day attracts upward of 500 visitors, but because of the pandemic, she expected numbers to be much lower.
Holmstad resident Dave Anderson, who had not been able to get his axe throws to stick to the target on his attempts, let out a big cheer and raised his arms in excitement as his last throw of the day stuck just below the bull’s-eye.
“Thank you, thank you — I’ll be here all day,” joked Anderson.
The event, which also included a dunk tank, radio-controlled cars, bags, crafts, and prepackaged snacks, gave the residents a safe way to spend time with their families.

Harrington wins Axe Throwing Contest (and cheese replica of Ryder Cup)
European Ryder Cup captain Padraig Harrington has stolen a 12-month advantage over USA team rival Steve Stricker after winning a Ryder Cup replica made of ‘Wisconsin Cheese’ in a bizarre ‘double or nothing’ axe throwing contest at Whistling Straits. Wisconsin-native Stricker first hosted Harrington to a 14-club challenge on the par-3 17thhole that is laid-out along the Lake Michigan shoreline in what was a final get-together for the 2020 team captains in a five-day ‘Year to Go’ celebration. The 14-club challenge, played in very overcast and mist-laden conditions, involved each player selecting seven clubs from driver right through to a putter, and scoring a win if finding the green. Harrington lost the toss, though questioned if it was a ‘Wisconsin coin’ given it had a head on either side and the American, wasting little time, went 1up thanks to landing his 6-iron on the green. Harrington missed with a 7-iron with Stricker then going 2up hitting his third shot, a 4-iron, onto the green. Harrington then missed with a 5-iron and a 4-hybrid leading Stricker to remark: ‘Have you managed to hit a green yet?’ ahead of the Dubliner missing with his fourth shot, a 2-hybrid. Harrington finally got on the board to be 1-down with his sixth club, a driver only for Stricker to win the friendly encounter 3 & 1 when he struck his final club, a Gap Wedge onto the green. Stricker then invited Harrington into a Whistling Straits maintenance shed for an axe-throwing contest, a sport common in Wisconsin, using specially endorsed 2020 Ryder Cup axes. It would be a one throw ‘double-or-nothing’ for a replica of the Ryder Cup made of cheese and donated by Harrington. Stricker quizzed: “What sort of cheese is it, Padraig?” Harrington joked: “Wisconsin cheese”. Stricker found a portion of the inner circle before Harrington stepped-up to a score a bullseye and the retain the cheese trophy. “Bullseye. In there and that’s a winner,” said Harrington. The duo were then observed tucking into the cheese and wishing each other well in a year’s time.
“It’s nice to be with you, Padraig,” said Stricker. Harrington responded: “Good luck to you and I hope we can have a great match.”
